Canon 1D X Mark II overview

  • 1Description

Bringing the shooting speed and video capabilities required by professional multimedia image-makers, the EOS-1D X Mark II is the flagship model within Canon's DSLR lineup, and is characterized by its robust processing capabilities and ability to enable a high-end multimedia workflow. At the heart of the imaging system is a full-frame 20.2MP CMOS sensor and dual DIGIC 6+ image processors, which contribute to fast continuous shooting rates up to 16 fps in live view, 14 fps with full-time AF and AE, and an expanded sensitivity range from ISO 50-409600. The sensor and processor combination also avails DCI 4K video recording at 60 fps and Full HD 1080p recording at 120 fps, along with the ability to record on-board to a CFast 2.0 memory card, or uncompressed Full HD video can be saved via HDMI to an optional external recorder. Benefitting stills shooting is an apt 61-point High Density Reticular AF II system, which includes 41 cross-type points for a high degree of precision in varying light conditions, and video shooting is enhanced by Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which makes its first appearance in a full-frame sensor for smooth, quick, and controllable AF in live view. With a versatile set of imaging traits, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II takes its place as a high-performance tool for professional photographers and videographers alike.

Complementing the robust set of imaging specs is an equally robust physical design based on a magnesium alloy body construction that is both dust- and weather-sealed for use in harsh environments. Integrated within the body is a large 3.2" 1.62m-dot touchscreen LCD for bright, high-resolution live view monitoring and image review, and a large 0.76x Intelligent Viewfinder II is offered for clear eye-level shooting. For versatility in file handling, both CFast and CompactFlash memory card slots are available, and the 1D X Mark II also supports sharing imagery over Wi-Fi, as well as wireless remote camera control, via the optional WFT-E8A Wireless File Transmitter. Additionally, a built-in GPS module permits in-camera geotagging of photos and videos, and also allows for auto time syncing with the Universal Time Code for more efficient file sharing and organization.

EOS-1D X Mark II Premium Kit
In addition to the camera body itself, this Premium kit also includes a SanDisk 64GB Extreme PRO CFast 2.0 memory card and an Extreme PRO CFast 2.0 Reader/Writer to get you started working with the fast transfer speeds afforded by the CFast media type. This CFast 2.0 card allows you to make full use of the 1D X Mark II's capabilities, including 16 fps continuous shooting in live view and 14 fps with AF/AE, a deep buffer limit up to 170 raw frames in a single burst, and DCI 4K video recording at 60 fps and 800 Mbps.
20.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor and Dual DIGIC 6+ Image Processors
A redeveloped full-frame 20.2MP CMOS sensor pairs with dual DIGIC 6+ image processors to avail notable image quality and accuracy, as well as fast performance throughout the camera system. The sensor itself integrates a gapless structure with micro lenses to provide enhanced low-light performance and reduced noise levels, and when coupled with the processors an expanded sensitivity range of ISO 50-409600 is available.

The sensor and processors also work together to avail quick shooting performance, with continuous rates up to 16 fps when working in live view. When working with the viewfinder, shooting up to 14 fps is possible along with the ability to record up to 170 raw files in a single burst if using a CFast 2.0 memory card. If shooting JPEG files, an unlimited number of frames can be recorded in a burst, even at full-resolution. If working with a CompactFlash card, the buffer is rated at up to 73 raw frames in a burst, or infinite JPEGs.

In addition to the stills attributes afforded by the sensor, it is also used for recording DCI 4K video at up to 60 fps, and it is the first full-frame sensor to incorporate Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology for precise, controllable, and fast live view focusing performance.
High Density Reticular AF II and Dual Pixel CMOS AF Systems
Benefitting accurate focusing and fast tracking performance, a 61-point High Density Reticular AF II system is employed, which incorporates 41 cross-type points for increased precision as well as a center point that is sensitive to -3 EV. All 61 phase-detection points support metering at effective apertures of f/8 or larger, which benefits the use of teleconverters and telephoto lenses. Additionally, a separate, dedicated DIGIC 6 processor is used for the AF and metering systems in order to maintain quick performance while recording 4K video or shooting at fast continuous speeds. As a whole, the AF system has gained approximately 8.6% in coverage in the center, and 24% in the periphery, for enhanced subject tracking across the image frame, and an AI Servo AF III+ algorithm is used to intelligently and precisely acquire focus in single-point, Large Zone AF, or any other focusing mode.

When working with live view during stills shooting or video recording, a Dual Pixel CMOS AF system is employed that provides incredibly quick and accurate focusing performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical focus is attained with each shot. When shooting video, a Movie Servo AF mode offers smooth and natural focusing when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority. Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognize subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery.
DCI 4K Video Recording
Designed for both professional stills shooting and video recording, the 1D X Mark II supports DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution recording at up to 60 fps at 800 Mbps, along with Full HD 1080p shooting at 120 fps at 360 Mbps for slow motion playback. When recording in-camera, 4K video has 4:2:2 sampling and 8-bit color depth, while Full HD 1080p footage has 4:2:0 sampling. Uncompressed Full HD 1080p video can also be saved via HDMI to an optional external recorder with 4:2:2 color sampling. 4K video is recorded using a central 4096 x 2160 area of the sensor, while Full HD recording makes use of the entire full frame, and a top sensitivity of ISO 12800 is available with 4K or ISO 25600 with Full HD.

Audio can be recorded using the on-board stereo microphone or an optional external mic can also be used via the 3.5mm mic jack. Real time audio monitoring is possible, too, via the 3.5mm headphone jack. The 4K video recording also avails the ability to take 8.8MP still frame grabs during playback and save them as single images.
Body Design
  • A large 3.2" 1.62m-dot Clear View II LCD monitor is available and features an anti-reflective design for bright, vivid image playback and live view shooting, and its touchscreen interface can be used for intuitive touch-to-focus control.
  • Dual CFast and CompactFlash memory card slots allow you to extend your file saving capabilities by permitting overflow recording or in-camera file type separation while shooting. The CFast card slot is compatible with CFast 2.0 memory cards.
  • An Intelligent Viewfinder II uses a pentaprism design and offers a bright means for viewing, along with a 0.76x magnification and 100% frame coverage. When using the viewfinder, AF points are highlighted in red for greater visibility in low-light conditions, and the finder can also be configured to display a range of other shooting aids, such as an electronic level, grid, flicker detection, white balance, metering mode, AF information, and other settings.
  • A robust magnesium alloy body design is both dust- and weather-sealed to permit working in harsh environments.
  • An integrated vertical grip allows for comfortable, intuitive, and efficient handling when working in either vertical or horizontal shooting orientations.
  • The included LP-E19 rechargeable lithium-ion battery is rated to provide up to 1210 shots per charge when shooting with the optical viewfinder. The 1D X Mark II is also compatible with LP-E4N and LP-E4 rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, however the top continuous shooting rate will be slightly reduced to 14 fps in live view and 12 fps with AE and AF.
  • A redesigned mirror mechanism helps to minimize mechanical vibrations in order to better ensure sharpness during long exposures or fast continuous shooting bursts.
  • The high-performance shutter utilizes lightweight carbon fiber blades for quick shooting speeds and is tested for up to 400,000 cycles.
  • Extensive connectivity ports allow for the attachment of various accessories, including the optional WFT-E8A Wireless File Transmitter for remotely controlling the camera from a smartphone or sharing files over Wi-Fi with support for the 5 GHz 802.11ac standard.
EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition AF
An advanced 360,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor works in tandem with the EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition AF system in order to maintain accurate and consistent metering results from subject to subject. High resolution, infrared sensitivity, and a refined detection algorithm all contribute to precise color and shape recognition, using the iSA (Intelligent Scene Analysis) system that quickens both exposure metering and autofocus performance. iTR (Intelligent Tracking and Recognition) AF also uses this exposure and subject recognition technology for improved moving subject tracking.
Other Camera Features
  • A built-in GPS module allows you to geotag imagery in-camera as well as auto time sync with the Universal Time Code via satellites. This module is compatible with American GPS, Russian GLONASS, and Japanese quasi-zenith Michibiki satellites for a wide coverage of support.
  • Digital Lens Optimizer technology compensates for a range of optical defects from various lenses, including chromatic aberration, distortion, peripheral brightness, and diffraction, and the camera can store lens data in order to avoid having to re-register lenses prior to each use.
  • In addition to full-resolution recording, files can also be recorded at reduced resolutions, including M-RAW and S-RAW sizes to save file size and memory card capacity.
  • Picture Style settings: Auto, Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Fine Detail, Neutral, Faithful, Monochrome, and User Defined 1-3.
  • Language support: English, German, French, Dutch, Danish, Portuguese, Finnish, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Spanish, Greek, Russian, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Romanian, Ukraine, Turkish, Arabic, Thai, Simplified/Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Japanese.

    Canon 1D X Mark II reviews

    EOS-1D X Mark II DSLR Camera Premium Kit with 64GB Card and Reader is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 92.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb camera It is truly a superb camera. I switched to it from 5D Mark III, which is also a great camera, and realized how superior 1Dx Mark III is to the next best camera Canon makes. It's autofocus is extremely fast and accurate, it's shooting speed raises brows (though later you end up with too many frames to go through:), it's ISOs are really impressive. I keep on testing it in very low light conditions and no matter how high I raise its ISO the frames are totally usable. The only thing that I would like Canon to improve is this camera's exposure. I'm purposely underexposing my photos because otherwise they'd come out almost a stop too bright.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from From Nikon to Canon I have been using Nikon D800 for a long time. Always had video and lens problems (love f 1.2) So decided to get this camera. Autofocus is amazing in this camera. Face following is not even missing any single second, I worry about autofocus a lot, so this camera will be great if you are too. 4K files are too big and it makes 3 separate videos if you exceed 4gb limit. 4K video is useable and soooo sharp but you definitely need SSD for you computer. If you are switching from Nikon, this camera is little complicated for you but will take couple days to figure out. ISO performance is pretty good but probably not the best in the market.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Follow-up to 1DX With nearly identical layout, the transition to Mark II from original 1DX is very comfortable. Video button makes it easy to change from photo to video mode and is an improvement over the previously menu hidden option. White balance seems improved in Mark II rendering more lifelike, purer skin tones. Thus far autofocus has a high percentage of correctly focused images. Facial recognition and touch screen are a nice addition for video. Facial tracking is REALLY fast. I had no problem following a moving child. It even works when the initial image is the back of a head. Since the Mark II adds features, the menus are slightly different and will take some getting use to. A worthy successor to the 1DX!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This camera ROCKS! I love everything about this camera. Feels great in the hand, the files look great, fast and easy to edit, the focusing is so fast and accurate you have to shoot it to believe it. For video, the touch screen pull focus is unbelievable. The menu is familiar to any Canon shooter. The buffer speed is out of this world. I can't wait to shoot my weddings and my live concerts this year with this beast. Also I love the frame grab capability from 4K video, it's a game changer. B&H makes the whole process a breeze, I wouldn't buy any serious photo video gear anywhere else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Camera ever! This 1DXMk2 is my 3rd 1 Series camera and it is truly the best! I love my 1DX and will be keeping it also for a long time! The reason I bought this camera was to be able to get far away animals and Birds In Flight with my 2xMk3 converter in fast and sharp focus and using more most focus points. Well to say the least it works great with both converters! I shot Skimmers zooming by with at moments with brush in my way using focus mode 2 and it stayed locked on target for most of the shots with fast focus and being able to shoot with 9 focus points! I was so happy to say the least! It does what they say it would!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love I upgraded to this camera from a 5D mk 2 so it's hard to imagine that I wouldn't like it. I shoot a lot of sports so the fast shooting speed and low-light sensitivity really drew me in. I was a little worried about the extra size and weight, but so far it really hasn't been an issue. There are obviously a whole lot more buttons and menus than on the 5D, but I've found them to be really pretty intuitive. If you've used Canon for a while, this is not a difficult camera to learn. This really is a fantastic camera. I'm very happy. Also, this is my first time using the CFast 2.0 and it's awesome.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Focus; Color Cast; 2.8 70-200 & 300mm, Adobe, workflow (1) Got the new camera 1DX MKII with a big spec on the lower left hand side of my viewfinder. (2)So far have used the same f/2.8 70-200 and f/2.8 300mm IS USM II that was spot on sharp, on my 1DX and they are not as sharp on the 1DX MKII, will have try MA aghhhhh!! (3) Color Cast is very different than the 1DX working with RAW files. Notice yellow cast rendering with LightRoom in Adobe Standard and with Camera Standard it is totally off. Could be that Canon or Adobe or both have not updated the 2016 CC Suite with what's needed for the 1DX MKII. A little disappointed to say the least. (4) I see after a few days that CF CFast Card combo is going to be trouble for workflow. :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The EOS-1Dx Mark III My name is Ari. I am a professional avian photographer who specializes in birds in flight. If you search you will find my extensive review of the EOS-1DX Mark II. Thanks to B&H photo I probably got the first body that was shipped out and took to a shoot right away. It performed outstanding in the field. In a short sentence the EOS-1D X Mark II is the class-leading body for action photography, it excels in AF performance, image quality, speed and overall operation in most demanding situations. There is no limit of what can be done with this camera in the hands of a skilled and talented photographer.
